An interesting and varied route which features in "Classic Rock". It is much frequented and therefore very polished, but the delightful exposed hand traverse is a joy. The chimney is often damp and unpleasant and can be avoided by taking the broken rib on the right and continuing up the right hand side of the gully above.
